Daisy takes the Jumperoo for a spin

Back in March, at my one and only baby shower, one of Paul's eight aunts and uncles (the Hupps) gave "the baby" a Jumperoo. Not sure if you have seen these things, but they are the Cadillac of baby jump seats. Crazy seat, with lights, music, toys to play with - we're talking baby luxury. At the time I was so excited to get it, and I remember thinking "this is going into the basement for at least a year."

Well yesterday as I was going through things for the move, I came across the ol' Jumperoo and started reading the box. Apparently there is no real age requirement for said Jumperoo, just that the child must have head control to use it. I thought to myself, "Hey, Daisy has good head control, what the heck!"

So I dragged this contraption up from the basement and started putting it together - bless Fisher Price because they make everything easy to assemble. Daisy sat in her car seat watching me like I was a freak, but she definitely had interest in all of the bright and shiny things I was "playing" with.

Then came the moment of truth, would she be able to sit in the Jumperoo. I started to slide her into the cute little orange, kangaroo covered chair and at first she looked COMPLETELY and TOTALLy panicked. And of course, she's not quite heavy enough to really bring the seat down low enough for her to push off and literally jump alone. It was so funny, her little legs hanging out of the bottom of the seat.

So I helped her bounce, and turned on all of the bells and whistles - she was hysterical. After a while she was sort of moving her body back and forth even when I wasn't bouncing her, trying to make it go. Dad took a couple pictures of her while she was in it last night, and I've posted my favorite.
